Pi-ssentials (Arch)

So I've compiled a list of essential packages for Pi-hacking within Arch linux that I've come across so far.  It will be updated regularly, so watch this space:

  • GNU screen
  • vim (add alias vi='vim' in /etc/profile)
  • sudo (%admin ALL=(ALL) ALL)
  • distcc (useful for compilation with cross compilation on faster machines - check out this article - I've not tried it at the time of writing, I'll produce a separate post when I do)
  • ethtool to debug some issues with networking
